If you’ve been eagerly anticipating new content for Halo Infinite, prepare for an exciting week ahead. Halo Infinite Season 2 was published on May 3, and it seems to be the most significant addition to the game since the single-player campaign began in December.
After starting your Xbox or PC, just open the game and download the Season 2 patch. Patches for current games in your library may be automatically downloaded by most systems. If you’re going to download the Halo Infinite Season 2 patch, be warned that it’s going to need up to 18 GB of space on your computer.
It’s hard to cover everything that’s new and improved in the Season 2 patch in a single post. There is a thorough array of patch notes on the official Halo Waypoint website—and we mean “extensive.” More than 7,000 words and 30 pages of text are included in the patch notes, which were copied and pasted into Microsoft Word. To get the most out of this game, you may be better off downloading the patch and playing it yourself.
In a nutshell, the most significant change to Halo Infinite is the start of a new multiplayer season. Players will be able to complete a new Battle Pass, which has 100 tiers and “up to 180 awards,” as a result. Battle Pass levels may be purchased for a fee, or earned simply playing more games. It doesn’t matter, since they’ll receive new cosmetic gear and a new tale cinematic anyway.
In the “Lone Wolves Narrative Events,” players may continue the story in multiplayer. There is already an event called “Interference” online, and it will continue until May 15. Beginning on July 19, “Alpha Pack” will run until August 1. By completing event-specific tasks, you may get exclusive things for a short period.
New multiplayer modes are also included in Halo Infinite Season 2. In Last Spartan Standing, the number of players who may revive is limited. Among the game modes available are King of the Hill and Land Grab, which is just King of the Hill stretched out across a number of areas.
The update also rebalances melee and weapon damage, ammunition levels, consumable items, and vehicles, among other features. Hardcore Halo Infinite competitors will likely only care about the tiniest of details, but it should help level out multiplayer battles a bit more. Both the Xbox One and PC versions of the game include issue fixes thanks to the latest patch.
Halo Infinite will continue to get updates as long as it remains a multiplayer game. We’d want to know when the next major single-player update will be released.
